Teaching Assistant (TA) Training
In response to faculty feedback, more training workshops for student assistants are available. These optional workshops can provide training that you may deem helpful for your assistant. Click on the workshop for more information and a schedule.
- New TA Introductory Training
If you have a student who has never been a TA before, this one-hour workshop is a great way to get them going by introducing them to working with faculty, returning & reporting, taking initiative, and maintaining confidentiality as they grade student work and keep records.
- I-Learn TA Training
This one-hour session aids your teaching assistants in grasping the technicalities of I-learn. They will learn how to efficiently navigate, troubleshoot, and support the learning environment you have created in your I-learn course.
- Writing Evaluation TA Training
In a series of online and face-to-face sessions, teaching assistants will be trained to assist faculty in evaluating writing. These sessions will include watching video instruction from faculty on writing, participating in a student-led workshop on rubrics in evaluating writing, and completing grammar diagnostic quizzes and reviewing (if necessary) relevant rules.
Workshop registration must be done by the student (not the faculty or department secretary) through this online system. Please send students the link below to sign-up:
Students are generally paid for the time they are attending workshops. If you have any questions please contact Alan K. Young at firstname.lastname@example.org.
